Console lights not switching on

I have a Honda Accord Euro 2004 and the lights behind the console are not switching on with the headlights. There was a funny burnt plastic kind of smell for a couple of days prior to this occuring. Does anyone have a wiring guide or know how to fix this problem? I have checked all the fuses and all the console functions still works, it's just hard doing everything in the dark!

    The issue is with the centre console and not the dashboard. The centre console backlights illuminate the a/c and radio controls in the car. Any other suggestions. I have since been to Honda and they have specified that the radio unit must be replaced.

If your dash lights are OFF then your tail lights are too !!!
It is a fuse ... replace the fuse even if it looks good ... see if this fixes it...

When you turn the lights on in the daytime (during rain) the console dims out. Honda accord, 2004

It's supposed to. The console is brighter during the day so that you can see it. At night, that same level of intensity is too bright. When you turn them on during the day, the car doesn't know whether it's day or night, so they get dimmer.

Use that switch to leave the up and there a a few screws that hold the plastic cover around the lights, just remove the cover and there a a couple more screws behold that cover that hold the headlight in place.. Should take about ten min to do both sides.. Any questions feel free to ask

1994 Honda Accord Ex dashboard removal

You have to remove the console and radio pod. Then remove 2 screws that you can now get to behind the pod. Then pry out the dash light dimmer switch (the one you use to adjust dash light brightness) remove the screw behind it that holds in the gage cluster trim. Then there is another switch on the other side under the cluster (don't remember what it is) and there is another screw behind it. Have fun, LOL!
